Charity Poker Tournament Raising Money for Dresden Rotary Club
The charity poker tournament will be raising funds for the Dresden Rotary Club Tornado Relief Fund. This was set up by the rotary club to help raise funds for those affected by the tornado outbreak that travelled across the Southern United States.
Of the several tornados that took place, one of the most intense hit Dresden. In the town that has just 3,500 people, over 140 homes were destroyed. The women’s shelter, City Hall, newspaper offices and fire department were also destroyed – as well as numerous businesses, churches, banks and restaurants.

The idea for the event was brainstormed by a member of the Americas Cardroom Twitch community who goes by ‘ZoesDad79’. He recognized how powerful of a platform ACR has, and worked with the cardroom to launch a tournament in support of those affected by those devastating event.
